What is a Master in Structural Engineering? Structural engineering, generally speaking, is the study of the way force interacts with materials. Making a reasonably accurate prediction as to the behavior of complex structures under load, such as dams holding water or high-rise buildings in windy conditions, tends to require both expansive knowledge and attention to critical details. A Master in Structural Engineering program usually attempts to prepare graduates to make such predictions via investigations of fluid mechanics, finite elements, systems modeling and failure mechanics. Electives might include earthquake engineering, earthworks or poromechanics.

Programme Structure


The course of study offers advanced studies in structural engineering. Students learn about selected fields of technology and are capable of bridging the gap between the fundamentals of engineering and applications in professional fields of work.

Students are prepared and accompanied by the University as they complete a practical semester at a school in order to apply their technical knoweldge and pedagogical skills in classroom lessons. Graduates are able to develop and implement teaching concepts using skills in the subject's teaching methodology and to present to others. The Master's thesis serves as the culmination of the program.


Two subjects are also combined in Master's teacher training studies. The combination possibilities for the teacher training subjects are identical with those in the corresponding Bachelor courses of study.

Master's teacher training studies includes not only the two subjects but other elements as well:

  • Advanced studies in structural engineering
  • Advanced studies in the pedagogy of structural engineering
  • Educational studies
  • Practical semester
  • German for School Students with an Immigration Background (DSSZ)

Entry Requirement

  • First university degree, required qualifications according to the examination regulations
  • Proficiency in German
